Princess Yachts launches hull No 3 of Princess 40M superyacht

Princess Yachts launches hull No 3 of Princess 40M superyacht

Princess Yachts has launched hull No 3 of its Princess 40M superyacht. Launched at the Plymouth, UK, builder's historic South Yard, the yacht is on schedule to enter her final completion and commissioning stages.

The 40M is Princess Yachts' flagship, and it is the largest composite motor yacht to be built in Britain. The first 40M, Imperial Princess, was launched to rave reviews in 2012, earning a World Superyacht Award in the Three Deck Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts category.

With exterior styling by Princess Yachts International and Bernard Olesinski, the tri-deck Princess 40M combines sleek lines with generous volume. The interior of Hull No 3 is designed in collaboration between the Princess Tailor Made interior design team and Mark Berryman. Each semi-custom 40M yacht features a unique layout, and hull No 3 boasts a six-stateroom layout featuring a gym and upper deck owner's suite.

The 40M is at the top of Princess Yachts' new M Class semi-custom superyacht class of yachts, along with the 32M and soon to be joined by the new Princess 35M. The raised pilothouse 35M will boast a gross tonnage of 243GT, making it 25 per cent larger than the 32M, and offering more spacious internal volumes and accommodations.

Princess 40M hull No 3 will be based in the Mediterranean, and delivery is scheduled for December 2013. Princess Yachts plans to exhibit its M Class at the 2015 calendar year boat shows, and it aims to have a 40M yacht at the fall 2014 yacht shows.
